“THE UNCOOK BOOK” – CAN YOU HELP UNCOOK THE PLANET?

OPEN CALL WITH A CLIMATE MISSION FOR ARTISTS AROUND THE WORLD

-        COMBAT CLIMATE NEGATIVITY BY INSPIRING & SPREADING HOPE ABOUT THE EXISTING SOLUTIONS TO THE CLIMATE CRISIS USING YOUR ART

-        A CHANCE TO BE PUBLISHED IN A UNIQUE BOOK WHICH FUSES SCIENCE & ART – MAKING CLIMATE SOLUTIONS INSPIRING FOR EVERYDAY PEOPLE

-        BE PART OF A CHANGE-MAKING CREATIVE COMMUNITY

“Science has a communication problem that art can solve.”

Thale Fastvold, Norwegian artist

To mark the exceptionally important COP26, Given, the agency for purpose-driven brands, is inviting artists working in all disciplines and from around the world, to be part of a unique project designed to combat the rhetoric of doom and gloom surrounding climate change. “The Uncook Book: How to Unbake the Planet” will use the artwork of selected artists to decode and communicate science’s most powerful solutions to the climate emergency. – making these scientific concepts accessible, mainstream and inspiring. Artists whose work is selected will not only have the chance to see their work published and be part of a unique change-making community, they will also be using their creativity to bring uplifting and hopeful climate solutions to the wider world in an impactful way. Profits from the sale of “The Uncook Book” will go to a climate positive charity.

“The Uncook Book” is not the answer to the climate crisis, but it is a call to hope for both head and heart. It is a stretched out hand to anyone who is feeling overwhelmed by the scale of the issue, those who want to make a change but don’t know where to start, or for people who simply want to believe that change is possible. That isn’t just optimism, it’s science. Genuine, science-based solutions to fixing the climate crisis do exist but don’t usually make the headlines. Given’s “The Uncook Book” will tap-into those within the scientific community who are championing climate solutions - solutions that are not about tinkering around the edges, but are reimagining our future. A future that means we can all thrive - us, our neighbours and our natural world.

But where science and theory haven’t been able to reach, creativity can. Using artists, “The Uncook Book” will fuse science and storytelling, logic and creative expression to spread real hope and inspiration that change is possible. Artists can use any creative medium they choose and will be tasked to capture 3 key concepts in a simple and inspirational way: unbake how we consume, unbake how we live and unbake what we value. Each concept will describe the problem, the scientific solution and artists will be invited to submit their take on real life examples which put the solution into practice.

Prize summary: 
Get published in a unique book which fuses science and art, be part of a change-making creative community and help combat climate negativity with your art.

Call for Artists: ‘COP26: Together For Our Planet’

Project Outline

This project is a collaboration between Occhi Arts and Entertainment, a London and New York-based arts, PR & media platform based in London and New York, and Phoenix FTA Limited, a UK-based sustainability strategy consultancy. Inspired by the UK Creative Earth Competition, Occhi Arts and Entertainment and Phoenix FTA Limited are now opening the opportunity to young artists from around the world to creatively engage with key topics of concern at the COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow. This initiative provides a wider audience of young artists with a renewed opportunity to visually express their views to world leaders and community stakeholders by producing 2D artwork (drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, and photography) that supports at least one of the following themes:

1. Protect What You Love

Climate Change is giving rise to more frequent wildfires, longer periods of drought in some regions, and an increase in the number, duration, and intensity of tropical storms. Glaciers are shrinking, plant and animal ranges are shifting or go extinct. Humans could save thousands of species from extinction if they act. ‘Protect What You Love’ encourages participants to express their concerns, highlighting what their hold dearly and want to protect from the effects of climate change.

2. A future beyond neoliberal capitalism?

With our societies forced into a truly deranged economic paradigm, one that landed us amid a terrifying climate emergency, it’s hard to imagine that the future of our human species lies beyond the patent immorality of neoliberal capitalism. A completely new system that puts equity and justice at its core is required. Young artists are invited to creatively express their interpretation of a “post-ecopathic” economic system via the mediums of drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, and photography.

Our Objective

Our objective is to foster and establish an inclusive young artists’ community that feels empowered to engage with global climate change politics by using their creativity, expressing their democratic voice, and participating in this vitally important discourse. We believe the project will help build a noteworthy platform to establish intergenerational collaboration with key stakeholders by raising awareness of COP26 and serve a cross-sectional analysis that will allow deeper insights into how Generations Z and Alpha perceive the severity of climate change. It fosters political engagement, participation in the democratic process, and voices intergenerational concerns.

Prizes Details: 

A final selection of works will be featured online and in a publication, to be produced after and in response to COP26 key outcomes. The featured artists and artworks will be announced approximately two weeks after the official deadline to ensure that our guest curators and editorial team give their full attention to each applicant’s work. Further updates and additional information will be posted on occhicontemporary.art and occhimagazine.com.

Open Call for Artists, COP26 Green Zone Exhibition, WaterAid

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

We are inviting artists to submit proposals for a visually arresting exhibition to be presented in WaterAid’s exhibition space at COP26 (Glasgow), responding to the theme of ‘The climate change and water story, as told by youth’. We believe it is essential to engage young people on issues relating to the future of their planet and to use our platforms to further amplify their voices.

You will be required to design a set of workshops that WaterAid will be running with young people in October to capture their responses to the water and climate theme. The exhibition must in some way incorporate the outputs of these workshops. We are also looking for the exhibition to drive further understanding through participation – we are interested to hear your ideas around how people could interact with the exhibition either physically on the day, or through a digital element. This is also something WaterAid are happy to work with you on and develop together once the concept is formed.

Our ambition is for the exhibition to provoke dialogues that deepen awareness and understanding of the links between water and the climate crisis. We hope that a powerful presentation that foregrounds youth voices will inspire attendees to continue the conversation beyond COP.

There will be many organisations exhibiting at COP26 with similar climate messaging – we need to cut through the noise with something unique and attention grabbing.

Water is not always seen as linked to climate change, so we need to deliver that message in a clear and effective way that positions WaterAid as a significant and relevant actor in the climate space.

Expressions of interest no longer than 1 sheet of A4

We are interested in hearing about similar projects you have worked on or are currently working on, specifically to do with climate change and/or work involving working with young people.
